All people that will be in Chamonix during the UTMB day will have the chance to discover the benefits of Vibram Megagrip, the brand new Vibram compound that provides absolute grip and performance on both dry and wet terrains, ideal for trailrunning shoes that require safe traction on soft and muddy grounds, as well as a long durability. Come join the Megagrip test-sessions at the UltraTrail Show and become part of this brand Mega Adventure by Vibram. Clinics will be scheduled with The North Face’s partnership as well.
Vibram Sole Factor
